Windows 7: cpu temp and fan

cpu temp and fan

For some odd reason; my cpu temp is running extremely hot. By that i mean its at like 143*F plus. I changed my fan speed to try and cool it down and its not cooling down very much. I know its not overly dusty in there because I blew out all the dust just last week. This just started happening like this morning so i dont know if my fan utility is reporting a incorrect temp(s); or what the deal is. Thanks Matt

by the way; the only thing i can think of at this point is maybe the thermal paste has broken down too much.

I would just pull the cooler and clean both surfaces and remount with premium compound and retest for temps. Don't forget that most all TIM's will need a number of on off cycles to full cure.

yea; Im gonna have to do that anyways as Im getting the replacement cpu delivered to me today. Gonna carefully put that in; scrape any old paste off and just slap some new stuff on there and see what happens. Its probably the paste I would imagine because the stock paste thats put on the heat sink from the factory has been on there since I had this system first built. So I would imagine its probably broken down by now from the heat etc.

Please post all temps in C not F.

143 F = 62 C not great but it really depends what load is on the computer and the ambient air temp.

You don't say what program you used to measure the temp, but try this one. It is good and tells you about all of your PC. Download the free one. Speccy - Download

I actually have that one; and i ran that too; and that one also was pointing at a cpu temp in the orange and red zone for all 4 cores.

As for posting the temps. Its easier for me to use F because Im not foreign or anything. Its too hard for me to figure out how hot a given temp is in c. We dont use C here so to me it doesnt make sense to post it in C; even if the rest of the world does. See the link below

To convert F to C, subtract 32 from the F reading & divide the result by 1.8 will give you the C equivalent.

EG. 154F minus 32 = 122 divided by 1.8 = 67.7C.

see the above link for cpu temp that was added in. As for the time being; I may be shutting down here for a little bit so i can pull the old cpu out and put the new one in and before i do; i will make sure new paste is on the heat sink. Its possible however that the box the new one came in has a new fan with new heat sink and new paste on it. But i still might get rid of that paste and put better stuff on it. Stuff that will hopefully last longer.
